    No, there hunter boards, I just cut and rewelded the mounts to bring closer to the body. Won't be on much longer, hopefully get the sliders on soon.

    They will be about 2" lower than the body. This is why the step rails are high now, do not want to snag them on rocks.

    Considering the fact that the largest tire size is a 265/75/16 or 265/70/17 which are both larger than a 255/60/18 I'm pretty sure they will fit. Maybe do a little research first.

    And it's also a "pics" thread. Not a question thread.

    That light bar looks good, you should paint the stock antenna black.

    Thanks! I plan on buying one of the shorty antennas when i get paid! im not a fan of the long one on there, plus when i am trucking through trees and what not it always gets caught and slaps against the side of my window.

    Ha yeah but they are 10. Im taking a month of leave to go back home in October so i buy all the necessities, then put everything into a savings account. Weird but its managed to save me 4k and i only started in march since i pent everything in feburary on tires, lift, control arms, etc. and i bought a tuner this paycheck, paid for my daughters first birthday, had to convert to cloth diaper which are stupid expensive.. already. Way overspent on a ton of things. but none the less i will buy one!

    I should have gone with the cragars like he did though, they look alot cleaner than mine do! The blue he has looks damn good as well. Blues a hard color to pull off too. Yeah it makes the car look completely different. It was a cheap mod too! instead of paying out the rear for expensive ones.
